for the new imf chief. "world business today," as the scoop. >>> and india is hungry for change, as rising food prices punish millions of people living in poverty. >>> first, let's get straight to the markets. uncertainty is overshadowing trade at the moment. most of the markets are down. it's a gloomy start to the session in europe, as well. here's how things stand. in the first hour of trading, a number of indices, able to hold on to early morning gains. but we've had the cac 40 moving down one-third at the moment. most markets ended the day lower. and the main reason for the caution here was the prospect of more monetary policy changing on monday. inflation is still a major problem in the second-biggest economy. investors were also focused on australia's central bank. as expected, this central bank left things unchanged. it looks as though that's likely where they're going to be staying in the near term. the reserve bank of australia, said that the country's growth may be weaker than expected going forward. and the aussie dollar did slip on the back of that news. >>> looking ahead to th
quite progressively. in fact, the deal for a $7 billion investment into reliance industry in india, it was clear last friday, hit all three exploration blocks but 21, they're hoping it pays off in the near future. they have challenges in russia. as you know, they've been trying to go into the arctic with a new partner. that's still tied up in the courts in russia. we don't know the payback in russia. so far, as of last week, he's moving aggressively because he's picked up new fields in the caribbean which he thinks are going to hold big promise for deep water. again, he's moved aggressively. he's an american ceo but a british company trying to turn things around. the payback hasn't come just yet. it's interesting to know the peak of the stock came two weeks before the spill and we're down 27% from the peak of 2010. so he had the wind in his sails then. >> and 2.5% today actually. >> yeah. so we're looking at a 27% drop before the results came up today. the real proof in fuding is what's going to happen in the year forward. can he get the new contracts in india to produce? can the r
like india even though the infrastructure is not very good they are very comfortable with a vibrant media, very comfortable with democracy. in the end, in the information age it's going to be hard. i rather bet on a country like india where every kid in bangladesh is trying to invent the internet. >> so india has a lead over china. >> absolutely. is america in decline? my answer is no. we actually are the best still and will be at creative thinking and connecting to it technology. who is inventing google, facebook, who is invengt twitter. even if it's immigrants coming in, google as an immigrant, this is a country in which we have and we celebrate the free flow of information, the free flow of ideas, creativity. in china, it's hard for them to be creative in the information and and that will be the comparative advantage of the united states. >> a huge important point. there was a powerful piece i "business week" where he talked about keeping the manufacturing here.
pipeline, iran-pakistan-india. the u.s. state department stood up and said, this is not going to happen. does it go through anyway as a litmus test? >> i think what was unfortunate is the problem between india and pakistan, that they didn't want -- on continuedian side to rely on the gas on going through pakistan. they thought maybe it should be offshore and so on. i think as far as iran and pakistan is concerned or the two are concerned, the deal is going quite a long way ahead on the iranian side. on the pakistani side there is so many announcements. of course, over 20 years, announcements are announcements, but they seem a bit more serious. >> pipeline politics indeed. it's become a major source of contention between lebanon and israel. they're warning israel to stay away from the country's energy resources but leaders of the hezbollah group calls on them for an energy exploration. maritime dispute over who owns what are escalating already heightened tensions between two countries. we take a special look. >> reporter: under the warm waters of the mediterranean may lie treasures yet u
if we don't see it through -- >> china will try to do something very dramatic. india will. others will. perhaps the russians. and we'll be left behind. >> china, augustin says, is moving ahead at lightning speed developing its space program. the man commanding the last shuttle flight worries, too, talk of trips back to the moon and onto mars have always been, well, just talk. >> mars is always 20 years in the future. it's been 20 years in the future for the last 30 years. i'd like to see how committed we are this time. >> i'm not doing too bad. >> no. you're doing good. >> back at the rock yard in houston i wasn't going to let an opportunity to drive gernhardt's vehicle pass me by. >> that's amazing. i'm going to drive just a little bit further because this is as close as i'm ever going to get. >> if america's priorities don't include space, it may be the only opportunity any of us get. coming up, is it time for commercial space? >> we want to see a future where we are exploring the stars, where we're going to other planets, where we're doing the great thing that we read about in scien
. >> will the contracts with the chinese companies be reviewed? >> with so many country, we have chinese, malaysia, india, we will not be selective. the people would want to be happy. can hes are not good flighting resources. no reason why we can allow one to monopolize the resources. we want many companies to come in. >> waef been seeing the cues for fuel. as a potential investor coming in, that is possibly something that could be quite worrying that at any point because you're still importing your fuel from the north because you tonight have refining capacities here that this could impact potential for property development. >> that's a serious problem. and it is part of it, but we wanted to maintain with the north because what happened here, they were built during a time when sudan was at war. now the war is over, we want a small refinery to be built in south sudan. and while we're working to build those refinery, we want our border to be open. >> you seem to be taking a two pronged approach to this. china is already the largest investor in your oil sector, but you also you seem to be targeting the ara
this is lords of london, a very, very famous place. by coincidence the match between england and india is the 100th between two nations. there's an obsession with statisti statistics. cricket is often considered inp inpenetratable to outsiders. this guy is one of the greatest men to walk. from 2009 it was reported that he took home more than $8 million, not bad for a cricketer. and the dim mine youive indian could rewrite the record machlt he's targeting his 100th international century. that's 100 runs in a row and that's a big deal. now, the only problem that he might face, have you spotted it yet? it's this. the british weather. this was the scene yesterday. check out the clouds. now, it's his record at large we need to talk. it's notoriously poor. despite an average score of 57. at lords the average is -- there you go -- 21. if he kunlt achieve it in this historic match it's only a mat owner when, not if, he'll hit 100. you can tell i'm very excited about this. i'm a huge cricket fan. i will hopefully get a chance to watch it. >> i'll tell you what, manisha. better you than me. i'm
